UNESCO Chemistry for Life Division in Paris has awarded 13 Associated Centres for research in chemical science and education. One of these is the UNESCO Associated Centre for Macromolecules & Materials, in the Chemistry Department at the University of Stellenbosch, Stellenbosch, South Africa. UNESCO has a humanitarian approach to the support of science and education. (See One of the ways it sees its goals is to encourage and partially sponsor UNESCO Schools in collaboration with scientific associations such as IUPAC.

The UNESCO School and Conference is held annually in Stellenbosch (50 km from Cape Town), South Africa (website: World authorities in various areas of macromolecular science are invited to deliver informative plenaries in their fields of expertise. Not only does this conference have the benefits of an IUPAC Conference, at which people can meet and form liaisons, it also introduces advanced concepts and techniques into Africa. Generous concessions are made for students and staff from disadvantaged communities or from countries with emerging technologies.

Abridged versions of papers presented at the UNESCO School and IUPAC Conference are then compiled, in printed form, to create this contribution to Macromolecular Symposia. The content of the papers are also made available as a PowerPoint Presentation in the Virtual Teaching Encyclopaedia, at website:
